Welcome to the first installment of #TruckerTuesday. David Correll and Tony Orr have been analyzing a survey of truck drivers conducted by the Sloan Foundation to pull insights from 1997 that are relevant in today’s landscape.

In this week’s edition, we look at the different methods that companies used to track their drivers and trucks on the road. Truck stop calls were still the main method of tracking while the adoption of the cell phone was starting to gain traction in the industry back in 1997. What do you think this distribution would look like today?
